What would you do if being with the woman of your dreams meant sabotaging your career? That's the exact situation high-profile executive Leigh Marshall finds herself in when she falls hard for her golf pro, who also happens to be an ex-con. Her board of directors haven't gotten the memo regarding workplace equality and who she sleeps with is still more important than her stellar qualifications. Peyton Broader has no interest in anything other than keeping her head down, reporting to her parole officer, and getting her life back. The last thing she needs is to lose her job or get sucked into other people's drama....

Avoid this narrator if you possibly can - I really struggled through it. Decent story but far too abrupt an ending

Eighteen-year-old Charlee Parker met the love of her life in a parking lot-a leggy brunette with a valedictorian medal hanging from her rear-view mirror and an attitude as biting as a Boston winter. Alexandra Woodson was guarded, a 19-year-old orphan set on a bright future in hospitality administration. She never imagined an art student with a penchant for cheesy pick-up lines and stealing parking spaces would crack her rigid exterior and claim her heart. For four years, theirs was an enviable love - evergreen and growing. Unbreakable... until it broke.

A great job in narration but the story jumps forward and back too much but Lord help us it is very frustrating - the angst is completely overdone

Gia Malone wants only to be the best surfer in the world. Her biggest obstacle is the annoyingly perky Elle Britton. But there's a lot about Elle that Gia never noticed, like her surprising sense of humor and picture-perfect mouth. Elle Britton is tired. All she wants in the world is a little peace and quiet. But with Gia Malone closing in on her ranking, she has to surf her best. When the media picks up the story of their neck-and-neck status, Elle finds herself forced further into the spotlight, this time alongside Gia, the knockout with the killer shred and sexy smile.

Danielle Stevens is Hollywood's "next big thing" in a long line of next big things. When she goes to Dallas to prepare for a role - shadowing Detective Harper Jeremiah - she's not only running from her fame...she's also running from a stalker. Harper Jeremiah wouldn't recognize a Hollywood actress even if she bumped into one on the street. But the perceived babysitting gig quickly turns into a protection detail as the threats against Dani escalate.

What would you do if an irresistibly desirable but utterly untouchable woman whispered to you, "If you want me, you'll have to come and get me?'" That's exactly the situation that Elliott Foster, CEO of Foster MacKenzie, finds herself in when she meets the alluring Lauren Collier, Chief Legal Counsel of a Fortune 500 company. Elliott never has a shortage of attractive women willing to share her bed, and she doesn't care if they are attracted to her or just her money.

Mallory Spencer is in charge. As the face of Soho Savvy, the advertising firm she owns with her three best friends, it's important that she's poised, polished, and put together. However, as she watches her friends couple up and settle down, she wonders about her own happily ever after. One thing's for sure. It's not going to happen with that blue-eyed bartender from Showplace. It's irritatingly clear they couldn't be more wrong for each other...or have more chemistry.
